We Love Sequins!

It seems only appropriate that the holiday season should be infused with a bit of shine, even if it is in the plastic form of sequins. The word sequin, in fact, was taken up in France to designate what it means today from the Italian word zecchino, a gold coin… Which makes sense since, in earlier centuries (dating back to 2500BC!!), they were made of shiny metals. Ahhh, isn’t history fun!

But, as we’ve come to know it, a sequin signifies that time of year when you are suddenly attending festive holiday parties and nothing seems more fitting than wearing a sequin-covered mini dress, the kind suitable for the likes of Romy and Michelle… at their high school reunion…

There must be a way to make sequins OK… Cool, even? They manifest into garments at every price point, shape, size, and color! Alas, where there’s a will, there IS a way. And who better than a group of girls gifted with the art of coordination to help give a few ideas? Meet the ladies of Chez Conversations: Mia, Margot, Cleo, Kate, and Liza!

With the new Django at The Roxy as our backdrop, the girls demonstrated just how easy it is to wear sequins without going overboard. Piano not included.
